We all have, or have had, at least that one best friend, if not more than one.
Who is a best friend?
A best friend is someone who has your back, a friend who loves you unconditionally, with all your flaws. Someone who tells you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear. A best friend knows you as much as you know yourself and always wants the best for you.
I am sure you have a best friend who does all this, and more.
But, are you your own best friend?
No one knows you better than you know yourself. No one understands you better than you understand yourself. No one knows your drawbacks and strengths better than you know them. We may say we tell our best friends everything, but do we really? There are some secrets that we keep to ourselves, buried deep within our hearts.
We know ourselves best, or at least we should. So doesn’t it make sense to befriend yourself, if you haven’t already that is?
Being your own best friend will mean befriending yourself. The process of befriending yourself will mean getting to know yourself better. Getting to know yourself better, truly and completely, will mean realising your pros and cons, leading to having a healthy relationship with yourself.
When you have a healthy relationship with yourself, you nurture you. You become mindful of what you think, what you say and what you feel. When this process begins you also learn to enjoy your own company. Enjoying your own company is the greatest gift each one of us can give ourselves.
Being your own best friend means that you are always available, when you need you.If you learn to become your own best friend you are guaranteed to have a friend for life. Click To Tweet
